Beautifully designed landscapes do not have to break the bank, and can fall well within any set budget. LandscapingNetwork.com has compiled three new money saving tips for homeowners and designers to cut landscaping costs on upcoming spring projects.
In recent years, trends in landscape design have allowed consumers to transform outdoor areas in both public and private sectors. Designers and homeowners, alike, are incorporating landscape elements like plants, hardscaping, entertainment areas and much more to create unique outdoor living areas. And while being able to incorporate all of these features is desirable, one must consider cost.
According to industry expert, Maureen Gilmer, these tips can save consumers thousands on new landscaping projects. Without sacrificing any of the project’s design qualities, the tips include:
1. Reducing plant sizes
2. Varying hardscape material finishes
3. Avoiding specialty construction, and choosing pre-fabricated options instead
These cost saving tips allow consumers to incorporate a variety of desired landscape features into any design, while staying within budget and maintaining the project’s design qualities.
